... if it would inspire the CBC to drop the execrable Mary Hynes and that ridiculous paean to overwhelming stupidity and illogic, the radio program "Tapestry." Driving around town yesterday and the eight or so minutes that I caught with Hynes and author Anne Rice pretty much doing one another on air, praising religious ignorance and taking ill-informed and offensive swipes at atheism was enough to make me think that you could replace that program with an hour of Ron Popeil hocking the Pocket Fisherman and it would represent a step up, morally and intellectually.

Maybe what we believe is an illusion – but it’s possibly a divinely inspired illusion.
Or maybe, just maybe, our ideas about "God" keep changing as we continually, you know, learn shit and constantly realize that what we believed before is idiotic nonsense but we're not grown-up enough to walk away from the burning stupid.
And my tax dollars are paying for that? Where do I complain?
